Heritage walk along the Rhosili Headland

Do you know what The Vile at Rhosili is? It's far more beautiful than the name suggests. Join our expert guides to learn about the history that envelops this visually stunning site.

  • Booking essential

Our guide will lead you through the meadows and to the end of the headland where you can enjoy the breath-taking views of Worm's Head. During the walk, you will be asked to imagine a time when oxen were used to plough fields, a castle camp protected farmers and a breeches buoy rescued sailors.
